Personal Message from Sheryl Crow (BARF ALERT)
sheryl crow.com ^ | 10/26/04 | Sheryl Crow

Posted on 11/01/2004 1:02:25 PM PST by rintense

Hello everyone. I am finally coming out of "hiding" to address what I feel is happening in our country. I am filled with fear, anger, despair, most of all, sadness at how the American people have been manipulated throughout these last 3 1/2 years and especially during this election time. I am concerned that we are not demanding better for ourselves from the media, but particularly from our government and our party leaders.

Do we not deserve better than a campaign based on fear tactics and political smear campaigns? Do we not feel we are smart enough to be able to understand the information that we need, or are we going to continue to sleep through a very destructive nightmare ahead of us. Do we not feel we are strong enough to handle the truth.

I have never, at least in my recollection, come out and asked people to vote for a particular candidate but instead, have always encouraged folks to get registered, do the research on issues that are presented, and vote. I am, in this instance, emphatically asking you to support John Kerry for more reasons than I can count.

Do we not know the proper use of question marks?

I think a good response would be "show us your %^%$" - just to show how much we care about her point of view.

You have to read the entire thing. It's hysterical. She's also got links pointing to 'distortion' articles by CNN about the President. LOL!

WTF? Coming out of "hiding"? She has been at the forefront of the Bush-bashing crowd for years but aparently she's just too darn stupid to know it. Does she have amnesia? What a moron.

You know I am really disappointed in Sheryl. I really like her music, but using her star power like this really makes me turn away from her. Too many artists live in a make pretend world, I wonder why that is ?

This from an 'entertainer' who stole most of her songs from her best friends.

Get a grip Cheryl, you don't need to vote for Kerry to protect your royalties. Bush enforces the law.

Obviously she doesn't feel we are smart enough, because she insists on trying to tell us who to vote for.

Doesn't say much for her counting ability...since there are exactly zero (0) reasons to vote for John Kerry.

When will these people learn they are NOT IMPORTANT TO THIS ELECTION? Here's the message Cheryl et al cannot seem to grasp: "Just because you are a (marginally) talented singer, doesn't mean your political opinion matters to anyone. Shut up and sing!"

BTW, I'd NEVER give this woman any of my money, as she is on my black list!

"I am filled with fear, anger, despair, most of all, sadness "

Good. Maybe sheryl and her fans will be so consumed with anxiety and despair that they won't be able to get out of bed tommorrow. Sheryl is calling on all fans to pull the shades, curl up with a bottle of hard drink and stay in bed on Nov. 2.

"I am filled with fear, anger, despair, most of all, sadness"

... so... she admits she is voting out of fear, anger, despair, and sadness?

Doesn't that suggest that Kerry has run an effective campain of fear? I think it does.

Another musician stricken with Maines' Syndrome. The symptoms show up at the most opportune moments. Caused by the same virus as Athlete's Tongue, aka Foot-In-Mouth disease. No known cure at this time, except symptoms can be alleviated by gin-soaked raisins.

She's been trying for two years. She hasn't done too well on the C&W charts. Rants like this should get her a spot opening for the Dixie Twits.

Well, she is right about that. We should demand that Rather be fired and that the news be "Fair and Balanced".

Do we not deserve better than a campaign based on fear tactics and political smear campaigns?

She is 100% right! Kerry and the Dems tactics have been despicable!

It's a blog. The mods have never demanded that anybody excerpt a blog.

In fact, they usually tell people not to excerpt them.

I can't help but remember every time I am subjected to the rantings of these poorly educated, reality-deprived, socially isolated, entertainers that it was an "entertainer" that killed Lincoln. Their mental stability, overall, hasn't changed much in 140 years.

I wish we could, as a people, tell them to BUTT OUT OF OUR BUSINESS!!!!! In my opinion, they abdicated their ability to participate reasonably in politics when they left the world the rest of us inhabit for destination La La Land.
